    I was once told that I should be working in a school beacuse of my desire to make a difference. I said that the reason was because they pay my wages. That did not go down well.

    Well, my wife is a teacher in a School, and I am an IT Manager in a School, and we both work because it pays our mortgage. Making a difference is all well and good, but my primary motivation is to put food on the table and a roof over our heads.
    My point is that for me to consider spending time filling in application forms, driving 2 hours for an interview, and then contemplate moving my family to another part of the country, I need more than a "why don't you do all that and then find out what the salary is". I'm not specifically referring to this job, but this attitude that if you ask what the pay is you're somehow demeaning yourself... didn't that die out in the sixties?
